G.A.B.

G.A.B. was born on June 12th of 1983 in California..... Raised in sub-standard conditions throughout many years of his childhood bouncing back and fourth around different schools and housing, calling Sacramento home for many years of his life. Throughout many rough patches of living Music seemed to be one of the few things that could allow him to escape that moment at hand.... This then transformed into poetry through his quiet and self contained High school years. Shortly after finding poetry to be a great emotional release G.A.B. stumbled into Hip-Hop. This new found Gift allowed him to become a known force in the Freestyle Battle scene. A Beast had emerged. G.A.B. traveled a long hard path for years carving out his style one opponent at a time....

CAP1TAL

CAP1TAL--AKA--CARTRELL arrived onto the musical platform of Hip Hop & R n B during a time when people begin to question rather the passion in this industry had died. He brings a different vibe to the world of music. After years of changing names from Cartel to L Cartel, this innovative artist, and song writer decided to take things to another level by choosing CAP1TAL(Cartrell) to make that happen. "I feel like the change that is missing in Hip Hop and the roots to change is CAP1TAL in this life, which is me," says CAP1TAL.
His style is like no other and is demonstrated through his unique blend of Hip Hop, Soul and R&B. Currently, he's working on his current project which will feature Prhyme Time, Mark Dawg, Joosah, and a few others from Da Advocatez..As well as putting together Da Advocatez compilation entitled "We Advocated"  Which represents a movement to promote a positive outlook on music in times where clones run the airwaves.

WhoRide

Well it all started back in August of 2007, when Mike Carlson AKA “MoneyMike” moved back to California. Mike moved next door to a close friend and was introduced to Jason Forget AKA “Rev~Jay”. With Money Mikes talent and Rev~Jays organization skills, they deceided to dedicate eachday towards making sounds that everyone would enjoy. With the help from close friends and family sharing there input and opinions about the tracks. Over time these tracks turned into masterpieces and Money Mike was the inspiration behind eachone. With alot of lab time on Money Mikes behalf, and the input from everyone we were in contact with, we came up with new music daily. The next step for us was to keep the music going and use this foundation that we had to build off of.Now that the ball was rolling, it was time to take it to the next step and start recruting other talent, expanding our communication skills.
